This an adopted recipe. The notes read: I have been making my Chinese chicken salad this way for years, and everyone loves it, and you will too! I make minor changes, depending on what I like. I especially like lots of chicken, and I make sure to marinate and grill the breasts. If you are In a hurry, buy pre-cooked breasts. Also, I like to use pre-packaged tri-color cole slaw for great flavor and color.
